Dakota Energy Annual Meeting Tuesday, June 14th
Electric cooperatives are owned by their members. Dakota Energy Cooperative’s members will have a chance to vote Tuesday, June 14, for who they want to represent them on the board of directors. East River wishes all of the members well at their annual meeting.
You may have seen information falsely accusing East River of “recruiting” candidates for the board of directors. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We have not been involved in any conversations with the incumbent directors or challengers about running for the board of directors.
East River Electric has served Dakota Energy members for more than 70 years and will continue to serve them with affordable wholesale electricity for decades to come. Over the past few weeks, the power of being connected to a cooperative family has been proven once again after the destructive storms came through eastern South Dakota. East River crews worked diligently to repair hundreds of broken poles and damaged infrastructure to get the lights back on as soon as we could. Cooperatives work together for the benefit of the members at the end of the line.
Again, East River wishes the members of Dakota Energy the best at their upcoming annual meeting.
